COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2018/130

of 25 January 2018

concerning the authorisation of a preparation of endo-1,4-beta-xylanase (EC 3.2.1.8) produced by Trichoderma reesei (BCCM/MUCL 49755) as a feed additive for pigs for fattening (holder of authorisation Berg and Schmidt GmbH Co. KG)

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 September 2003 on additives for use in animal nutrition (1), and in particular Article 9(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 provides for the authorisation of additives for use in animal nutrition and for the grounds and procedures for granting such authorisation.

(2)

In accordance with Article 7 of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 an application was submitted for the authorisation of a preparation of endo-1,4-beta-xylanase (EC 3.2.1.8) produced by Trichoderma reesei (BCCM/MUCL 49755). That application was accompanied by the particulars and documents required under Article 7(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003.

(3)

The application concerns the authorisation of a preparation of endo-1,4-beta-xylanase (EC 3.2.1.8) produced by Trichoderma reesei (BCCM/MUCL 49755) as a feed additive for pigs for fattening, to be classified in the additive category ‘zootechnical additives’.

(4)

The European Food Safety Authority (‘the Authority’) concluded in its opinion of 25 January 2017 (2) that, under the proposed conditions of use, the preparation of endo-1,4-beta-xylanase (EC 3.2.1.8) produced by Trichoderma reesei (BCCM/MUCL 49755) does not have an adverse effect on animal health, human health or the environment. The Authority concluded that the additive is considered efficacious in improving final body weight and feed to gain ration in pigs for fattening. The Authority does not consider that there is a need for specific requirements of post-market monitoring. It also verified the report on the method of analysis of the feed additive in feed submitted by the Reference Laboratory set up by Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003.

(5)

The assessment of the preparation of endo-1,4-beta-xylanase (EC 3.2.1.8) produced by Trichoderma reesei (BCCM/MUCL 49755) shows that the conditions for authorisation, as provided for in Article 5 of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003, are satisfied. Accordingly, the use of that preparation should be authorised as specified in the Annex to this Regulation.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The preparation specified in the Annex, belonging to the additive category ‘zootechnical additives’ and to the functional group ‘digestibility enhancers’, is authorised as an additive in animal nutrition, subject to the conditions laid down in that Annex.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 25 January 2018.

Additive composition

Preparation of endo-1,4-beta-xylanase (EC 3.2.1.8) produced by Trichoderma reesei (BCCM/MUCL 49755) with a minimum activity of 15 000 EPU (1)/g

(solid form)

Characterisation of the active substance

endo-1,4-beta-xylanase (EC 3.2.1.8) produced by Trichoderma reesei (BCCM/MUCL 49755)

Analytical method  (2)

For quantification of endo-1,4-beta-xylanase activity:

colorimetric method measuring water soluble dye released by action of endo-1,4-β-xylanase from azurine cross-linked wheat arabinoxylan substrates.

Pigs for fattening

1 500 EPU

 

1.

In the directions for use of the additive and premixture, the storage conditions and stability to heat treatment shall be indicated.

2.

For users of the additive and premixtures, feed business operators shall establish operational procedures and organisational measures to address potential risks resulting from their use. Where those risks cannot be eliminated or reduced to a minimum by such procedures and measures, the additive and premixtures shall be used with personal protective equipment, including skin, eyes and breathing protection.

(1)  1 EPU is the amount of enzyme which releases 0,0083 μmol of reducing sugars (xylose equivalent) per minute from oat spelt xylan at pH 4,7 and 50 °C.

(2)  Details of the analytical methods are available at the following address of the Reference Laboratory: https://ec.europa.eu/jrc/en/eurl/feed-additives/evaluation-reports.
